Welcome

Treasure Hunt of Historic St. Augustine

Welcome to the St. Augustine Shipwreck Museum’s Treasure Hunt of Historic St. Augustine! You will laugh and learn while you earn virtual coins which can be redeemed for fun and valuable prizes! You have 36 hours to complete your Hunt!

Clues

Look for the QR Code

You will encounter 3 types of questions on your Hunt. Some you will answer by scanning a QR code at a particular location, some you will answer by filling in the blank and for others, you will select an answer from multiple choices. If you answer a question incorrectly, you can “Try Again” but that will mean you can only earn only ½ of the virtual coins for that question when you answer it correctly. If you are stuck on a clue and cannot figure it out, you can press skip and you will be given the coordinates with a photo of the next clue. Proceed to that location. You will not receive virtual coins for skipped clues.

Clues

Answer the Riddle

Please follow these guidelines to keep you safe and to help you on your Hunt!

Remember this rhyme to bring you some ease…
Moss grows on the NORTH side of trees.
The Sun rises in the EAST and sets in the WEST.
The Birds know to do what’s best
In the winter SOUTH they fly!
And if something is close, it’s also NIGH.

  • Your safety and the safety of others is paramount. Take every care and precaution to maintain safety at all times. 
  • Do not jump fences or enter private property. No clue will require this and again, safety first.
  • QR codes will be visible from the street/sidewalk. It is not necessary to enter an establishment to scan a QR Code.
  • Do not change direction during a clue unless directed to do so.
  • Obey streetlights, street signs, all laws and always use crosswalks.  Remember, safety first!
  • Read ALL historic signs/plaques you pass. 
  • Some clues will be within a few feet of each other. Some will be several blocks apart.
